In my opinion 15-18 months is one of the trickiest ages to photograph — they are fully on the move/run, and not too into the whole idea of sitting still for pictures ;) Two toddlers is double the fun! I spent a busy morning chasing these two adorable little people around one Saturday in May… I think we had all worn each other out by the end of our session; but happily came away with some wonderful images of this crazy busy season. As ever, I am in awe of parents of multiples… You are my heroes!

Gina contacted me in the spring about doing a mini session for their family to celebrate this season they find themselves in : happy and healthy after an intense year with a premature baby. We met up at Butlers Orchard and these sweet girls couldn’t have been better subjects for me… I hope these pictures convey the joy and love this family shares.

jeff & audrey have been some of my favorite clients over the years, ever since i shot their maternity session back in 2011. i photographed miss Isabel as a newborn, a family session in 2012, and then sweet henry joined the crew last year. i feel like i say it all the time, but it’s true : getting to document the joys and changes of a family over the years is a complete honor. thank you ingram family for trusting me with that privilege!

i photographed kelly & jimmy’s engagement session a few years ago. then a maternity session on a hot summer evening. and then baby james newborn session. i love getting to celebrate with a family through the years like that. it was fun meeting up for a mini session and seeing the active little guy James has grown up to be. sweet boy, you are loved.

the last time i photographed ellie & vickie they were tiny newborns. we met up in the buttercup field on mother’s day for a nine month mini session. some of my subjects were happier about the whole picture taking thing than others ;) what fun to see them grow.

ellie’s parents contacted me about a newborn shoot last year,  just before my wedding, and sadly, we were unable to coordinate our schedules. i was so happy they looked me up again for her one year shoot in June. we returned to my new favorite field, still covered in buttercups, and spent a wonderful morning together. i have a weakness for dimples and ellie’s are the b e s t! such a darling happy girl. i was grateful for the opportunity to document the one year milestone for this sweet family.

Connor is one of my first year clients, who I’ve had chance to photograph three times over the past 12 months. This session was definitely my favorite with him. He is the happiest little guy. I loved the simple color palette mom chose that blended so perfectly with the gorgeous late spring day we ended up with. Sweet boy – I feel so lucky to have been able to capture your first year! You are so very loved.
